In the present paper, we discuss some recent advances concerning the determination of new radiative parameters (transition probabilities, oscillator strengths, radiative lifetimes, branching fractions, Landé factors) in heavy ions. We also emphasize the difficulties that are frequently met in the field and that sometimes prevent obtaining accurate atomic data for the transitions of astrophysical interest. We concentrate particularly on the determination of radiative parameters for selected rare-earth (RE) ions (lanthanides and actinides) and for some atoms and ions of the sixth row of the periodic table.

The goal of this study is the evaluation of the long-term efficiency of voice therapy (> to 6 months) in the treatment of dysfunctional dysphonia . Four subjective measurements were performed on 29 patients: -A visual analogical scale (VAS) ranging from 0 (not efficient at all) to 100 (very efficient). -A question “Is the speech therapy still efficient?” Yes or no. -The G(rade), R(oughness) and B(reathiness) parameters from the GRBAS perceptual scale (evaluated by the patient measured on VAS). -The Voice Handicap Index-10 (VHI-10). The results show that 76% of the patients consider that the voice therapy is still efficient. In regard to G.R.B., we observe a high score for G (median: 77). The score for R is lower (median R: 12). G and R are significantly correlated (r Spearman=0.516, p=0.004), but the satisfaction of the vocal quality does not seem correlated to B (p=0,251, NS). The median values of VHI 10 shows a significant improvement from 15 to 10 (p=0,017). In addition, the correlations between the judgment on the treatment efficiency and vocal quality (r=0,623, p<0,001) and between VHI-10 and the length of treatment (r=0.416, p=0,035) are significant. The first correlation shows that the most satisfied patients when it comes to the vocal therapy are also the most satisfied when it comes to their vocal quality. The second correlation specifies that the longer the treatment, the higher the grade of vocal handicap. Voice therapy is efficient in the long term and is worth to be prolonged for difficult cases [less ▲]

Aphid-Ant relationships are common examples of mutualism. Aphids are indeed submitted to predation and therefore require protection, while ants are continuously looking for new sugar sources. The present work aimed to study the benefits that a mutualistic relationship with Lasius niger (Hymenoptera : Formicidae) could bring to the black bean aphid Aphis fabae (Homoptera, Aphididae). Several parameters were observed in the field, on broad bean plants infested with an initial amount of 100 A. fabae and in presence or not of a L. niger colony. More aphids were observed on plants being visited by ants as well as a higher proportion of winged individuals. One explanation is that fewer predators were observed on plants being visited by ants, demonstrating their protective role. However, the number of parasitized aphids was not reduced in presence of L. niger. On the other hand, fewer different aphid species were present on plants foraged by ants, what suggests that they could exert a predation on unattended aphids. Our observations do not allow to conclude on any impact of L. niger on the fitness of the aphid host plant, although fewer exuvia and honeydew spots were observed when they were present. All these results confirm that L. niger increase the fitness of A. fabae colonies mainly by decreasing the number of predators and by reducing competition from aphid species unattended by ants.

This paper considers sequential decision making problems under uncertainty, the tradeoff between the expected return and the risk of high loss, and methods that use dynamic programming to find optimal policies. It is argued that using Bellman's Principle determines how risk considerations on the return can be incorporated. The discussion centers around returns generated by Markov Decision Processes and conclusions concern a large class of methods in Reinforcement Learning. [less ▲]

L'estimation de la nuisance olfactive dans l'environnement est une tâche rendue particulièrement difficile par la multiplicité des sources, leur grande variabilité, leur caractère parfois très diffus et fugitif et surtout par la subjectivité de l'appréciation de la gêne. Aussi faut-il mettre en œuvre plusieurs méthodes complémentaires qui vont de l'analyse chimique (GCMS) aux enquêtes de riverains, en passant par l'olfactométrie dynamique impliquant un panel de personnes reniflant différentes dilutions d'un échantillon prélevé sur le terrain. Or, aucune de ces méthodes ne permet un suivi continu des odeurs qui viserait, par exemple, à détecter l'émergence d'une émission particulière dans une ambiance. A ce niveau, la technologie des nez électroniques semble très prometteuse et particulièrement attractive. Basée sur la réponse globale d'un réseau de capteurs non spécifiques, elle permet non seulement d'identifier qualitativement une source particulière, mais également de la suivre en continu. L'unité "Surveillance de l'Environnement" de l'ULg applique cette technique pour suivre les odeurs en périphérie de sites émetteurs et notamment un centre de compostage. Les appareils développés sont basés sur des capteurs commerciaux à oxydes métalliques. La méthode exige une calibration préalable afin de créer et de valider le modèle de reconnaissance et la loi qui relie les signaux des capteurs à une variable quantitative comme la concentration d'odeur. Bien que testée avec succès autour d'installations en vraie grandeur, la technique des "nez électroniques" reste soumise à de nombreuses limitations et contraintes. Parmi ces contraintes, il faut citer la dérive des capteurs, l'influence de l'humidité et de la température, la difficulté de trouver un gaz étalon représentatif des odeurs environnementales ou encore celle de calculer un indicateur global qui serait l'image "électronique" de la nuisance olfactive. En général, la méthode du nez électronique peut être envisagée pour le suivi d'odeurs ponctuelles à la source, par exemple dans un hall de compostage ou dans un bâtiment d'élevage, pour autant que l'ambiance ne soit pas trop agressive. L'unité de recherche teste actuellement le principe de réseaux de nez électroniques placés tout autour d'un site. En ajoutant l'information en provenance d'une station météorologique, un tel système permet la prédiction en temps réel de zones de nuisance olfactive dans l'environnement. Cependant, dès que l'on s'éloigne de l'émission et que l'on s'intéresse à la mesure de l'ambiance olfactive à proximité des habitations des riverains, la technique des nez électroniques présente une limitation sévère due au seuil de détection des capteurs. En effet, le nez humain est parfois sensible à de très faibles concentrations de composés volatils qui ne sont pas détectées par les capteurs. Il devient alors indispensable de piéger ces composés dans des dispositifs de pré-concentration en ligne. De tels dispositifs, actuellement en développement, autoriseraient un élargissement du champ d'application des nez électroniques, notamment vers le domaine très vaste de l'environnement intérieur.

The development of the winter-spring phytoplankton bloom is investigated in the oligotrophic Bay of Calvi (Corsica, Ligurian Sea, Northwestern Mediterranean) since 1979. Time-series results enlighten that changes in environmental conditions in the Corsican sector have altered the coastal phytoplankton dynamics and induced a drastic reduction of the winter-spring phytoplankton biomass over the last three decades. At the local scale, variations in winter wind stress control the development of the winter-spring phytoplankton bloom and the structure of the phytoplankton assemblages. Results emphasize that the total phytoplankton biomass (chl a) is higher during high winter wind stress years. From a specific point of view, flagellates are always the dominant component of the phytoplankton bloom communities. However, diatoms tend to be more abundant during high winter wind stress years. At a wider scale, a link between the intensity of the phytoplankton bloom and the winter NAO index is established. Lastly, the decrease in phytoplankton abundance coincides with changes in zooplankton populations. As a consequence, the entire pelagic food web dynamics is affected by climate variations and the ecosystem resilience is threatened. [less ▲]

In August 2006, Belgium notified its first cases of Bluetongue (BT), serotype 8, in cattle and sheep. The disease was also observed at this time in the neighboring countries. The resurgence of BT was observed in Northern Europe in 2007. The aim of the study was to compare clinical signs of BT observed in 2006 vs 2007 in Belgian cattle. The description of clinical signs was based on the observation of 38 and 39 cows in 2006 and 2007, respectively. BT cases were only included if they were confirmed by one or both laboratory diagnostic tests (competitive ELISA test and/or RT-qPCR). The inventory of clinical signs was made with a standardised clinical form for BT. This form is divided into general, cutaneous, locomotor, digestive, respiratory, neurological and reproductive clinical signs. Case data were summarised to determine changes in clinical presentation of BT between 2006 and 2007. A Fischer’s exact probability test was performed to compare (P<0.05) the frequency of clinical signs between the two years. Regarding general clinical signs, hyperthermia and tiredness were more often observed in 2007, compared to 2006. All clinical signs about skin and annexes were not significantly different between the two years. Locomotor signs such as prostration, incapacity to get up, reluctance to move, lameness and amyotrophy were more frequent in 2007. Loss of appetite, difficulties in grasping feed, salivation and drooling were the digestive signs more often observed in 2007. A purulent nasal discharge was the only respiratory sign more commonly observed in 2007. Apathy, generalised weakness and paresis or paralysis were more often encountered in 2007. The most important changes between the two years concerned reproduction. A higher incidence of abortion, premature calving and stillbirth was observed during 2007 outbreak. The frequency of most of the clinical signs of BT was higher in 2007 in Belgian cattle. Confirmed cases of BT in Belgian cattle were only 296 in 2006 compared to 4187 in 2007. These data do not represent the real situation of BT infection because the farmers do not notify all cases. Nevertheless, it seems that the 2007 outbreak was more severe regarding the number of cases and the frequency of clinical signs. The mild winter and wet 2007 summer might have favored the persistence of the vectors. [less ▲]

Substituting a heat pump to a boiler may save more than 50% of primary energy, if electricity is produced by a modern combined cycle power plant (and even more if a part of that electricity is produced using renewable sources). Two of the most attractive heat pumps applications consist in recovering the heat rejected by the condenser of an existing chiller and in using this chiller in reversible mode. This is the topic of the IEA-ECBCS Annex 48 project (“Heat pumping and reversible air conditioning”). An overview of the project is presented and the work of the different participants is briefly explained. Case studies are also briefly presented and more details are given on one of them. [less ▲]

An extended set of Hubble Space Telescope (HST) observations of the UV auroral emissions from Jupiter and Saturn has been carried out in three campaigns over Jan.-June 2007. This is by far the most extensive series of remote high resolution imaging of planetary aurora to date, and provides new physical insight into the cause and effect relationships governing the controlling processes for the giant planet auroral emissions. Simultaneous in situ measurements of local solar wind and magnetospheric plasma conditions have been made during two of these campaigns by Cassini at Saturn in Jan. 2007 and by the New Horizons mission approaching Jupiter in Feb. 2007. The UV auroral emission brightness and distributions have also been compared with estimates of the solar wind conditions near each planet extrapolated from near-Earth measurements, which can be verified by comparison with Cassini and New Horizons in situ data. It has been found that there is a good correlation at both planets between total auroral power and solar wind dynamic pressure, at least for the major solar wind disturbances arriving at each planet. At the same time, the nature of the auroral brightenings differs between Jupiter and Saturn, and the source regions of auroral activity are quite different in the two magnetospheres. In this presentation, the HST and solar wind data and the nature of the correlations will be presented. The physical significance of the correlations will be discussed, based on the much denser set of measurements now available. [less ▲]

Cassini's Ultraviolet Imaging Spectrograph (UVIS) has completed three years of study of Saturn's atmosphere and auroras. Two long slit spectral channels are used to obtain EUV data from 56.3-118.2 nm and FUV data from 111.5-191.3 nm. 64 spatial pixels along each slit are combined with slit motion to construct spectral images of Saturn. Auroral emissions are seen from electron-excited molecular and atomic hydrogen. In 2007 UVIS obtained data with the spacecraft well out of Saturn's ring plane, permitting us to create images, spectra, and at times movies. We will present an auroral movie from 2007-145 that has been processed to remove flat-fielding artifacts and deconvolved to remove scattering along the slit. The movie shows near co- rotation of N polar auroral features with the planet's rotation. An auroral oval is present. The oval appears doubled on the midnight side. Other images from this year show emissions inside the auroral oval. We will discuss these images and their spectra. Additional images and movies are planned in coming months. [less ▲]

We present the first UV airglow observations of Titan's atmosphere by the Ultraviolet Imaging Spectrograph (UVIS) on Cassini. The known UV emissions of Titan have been examined with higher spectral resolution (0.4 nm FWHM) by the Cassini UVIS than in the past by the Voyager Ultraviolet Spectrometer (UVS) (3.0 nm FWHM). The UVIS observations, confirming Voyager UVS results, have shown that molecular nitrogen is the major constituent of the upper atmosphere of Titan. Using one spectral channel in the EUV from 56--118 nm and one in the FUV from 112--191 nm, the UVIS observed the disk on 13 December, 2004. The combined EUV and FUV spectral region is a probe of the stratosphere-mesosphere-thermosphere-exosphere region from about 300--2000 km. The EUV spectrum consists of three band systems of N2 (b {1}Πu, b' {1}Σu+, c{4'} {1}Σ{u+}--X {1}Σ{g+}), while the FUV spectrum consists of one N2 (a {1}Πg--X {1}Σ{g+}). The UVIS observations reveal that the c{4'}(0)--X(0) vibrational band near 95.8 nm is suppressed, and that N \sc{i} multiplets near 95.32 and 96.45 nm are present instead. Magnetospheric particle excitation is weak on this orbit, since the nightside EUV spectrum shows no observable N2 emission features and only H Lyman-β. The absence of significant darkside emission demonstrates that nitrogen emissions are predominantly excited on this orbit by photoelectrons near 900 km in the thermosphere. Above 145 nm most of the observed signal is due to sunlight reflected by N2 in the Titan mesosphere-stratosphere and modified by aerosol and hydrocarbon absorption. Mixing ratios of C2H2, C4H2, C2H4 and tholins have been derived from the reflected sunlight emission between 145 and 190 nm, using a Rayleigh scattering model. Assuming that the energy deposition at these wavelengths occurs near 300 km, these mixing ratios are in good agreement with recent photochemical models and previous Voyager observations in the IR. We also present the first geometric albedo measurement of Titan from 150--190 nm. [less ▲]

Northern elephant seals, Mirounga angustirostris, are exceptional mammals: females fast entirely during nursing while their pups may quadruple in weight over the 25-day suckling period. Females thus lose approximately a third of body mass and produce energy-rich milk with a high fat content. Stable carbon and nitrogen isotope ratios (d13C and d15N used as diet markers) and total mercury concentrations (Hg) were measured in tissues (blood cells, serum, full blood, milk and blubber) from 20 mother-pup pairs on days 4 and 21 of lactation. A systematic difference was observed between isotopic values in blood cells and serum of the mothers, linked to diet and distinct biochemical composition between blood components. d13C differed between inner and outer blubber layers and were similar between inner blubber and milk. High Hg concentrations (up to 350 ng.g-1ww at the beginning of lactation) were found in the blood of mother elephant seals linked to their high d15N values in blood cells. Hg transfer through placenta and milk was observed between mothers and pups. A significant increase of blood Hg concentration in mothers (+285 ng.g-1ww) and a decrease in pups (-93 ng.g-1ww) were observed between days 4 and 21 of lactation. Both processes were explained by a remobilization of proteins and lipids during fasting and milk production in mothers and by a dilution of Hg in pups due to their high mass increase during this period. This study confirms that lactation modifies stable nitrogen isotope ratios in tissues, as well as mercury levels in blood from mothers and pups, and highlights the existence of a transplacental and transmammary transfer of mercury in northern elephant seals. Therefore, physiological processes and body condition should be considered carefully when interpreting stable isotope ratios and Hg concentrations in the framework of biomonitoring. [less ▲]

A dynamic model has been developed to represent biogeochemical events observed during an experimentally induced bloom of coccolithophores Emiliania huxleyi. This bloom occurred in a mesocosm experiment (Bergen 2001 experiment) during which ecosystem development was followed over a 23-days period through changes of the stocks of inorganic nutrients (nitrate, ammonium and phosphate), dissolved inorganic carbon and pCO2, O2 concentration, pigments, particulate organic carbon and nitrogen, dissolved organic carbon, the production of Transparent Exopolymeric Particles (TEP), primary production, alkalinity, calcification and particulate inorganic carbon. The dynamic model is based on unbalanced algal growth and balanced growth for bacteria as described in Van den Meersche et al. (2004). In addition, in order to adequately reproduce the observations, the model has been extended by including an explicit description of calcification, T.E.P production and an enhanced mortality due to viruses. This last process, based on a critical promiscuity between cellular hosts and viral agents, successfully contributed to reproduce the bloom extinction as observed in the mesocosm experiment. This model will be implemented in a coupled physical-biogeochemical model of the Black Sea ecosystem in the framework of the EU Sesame project and in the Gulf of Biscay in the frame of the Belgian PEACE project.

Inspired from the experience of river contract in Wallonia (Belgium), the implementation of a first river contract has been initiated in a West-African country, Burkina Faso, since 2003. In the program of actions approved by the river committees in December 2005, the protection of water resources and grounds was taken into account. The first realized actions contributed to slow down the degradation of the ecosystems by recreating a space buffer between the river and the cultivated zones. A first project of restoration of the gallery forest alongside the stream was implemented to fight against desertification. This project arouses a strong mobilization of the local actors and demonstrates that such a contractual tool of participative management can make an interesting contribution in favour of an integrated management of waters and grounds. In a river contract, these two resources are associated in a common reflection which transcends still too often sector-based policies. [less ▲]

Sport competitions are not just a game; they should be a celebration of social links and understanding among different cultures and traditions. Therefore it is important to ensure that they take place peacefully and in a secure and safe environment. In many cases, the most violent incidents have an international dimension, since large numbers of supporters cross national borders to attend major events. A stronger cooperation between the various communities for the prevention of incidents requires a more structured dialogue between all the stakeholders, including national and local governments, law enforcement agencies, judicial authorities, sport organisations e.g. clubs, supporters’ associations etc. The goal is to deliver a multidisciplinary approach that shares best practice across Europe, and improves day-to-day cooperation between all the actors.
